Aaron Lee paints on canvas with oil paint, and explores the diverse textures and techniques created by adding acrylic and spray paint.  He also enjoys working in sculpture, jewelry making, product design and printmaking.  He says, “I believe in the power of creativity and the power that fine art has to provide healing and inspiration for the viewer .”  With that in mind, his dream  is to open a youth center and teach young people how to be creative in the areas of art, music, and mental health.

We will also be featuring Local Authors F.M. Barrera, Nan Mahon, Kathy Lynne Marshal, Gregg Matson, and Shirley Parenteau.  F.M.'s fantasy/fairy tale - QUEST OF THE HACHAMI, LOST RELICS OF ATLANTIS, Nan's mystery - BLIND BUDDY AND MOJO'S BLUES BAND, Kathy's family biography - THE ANCESTORS ARE SMILING, Gregg's collection of non-fiction essays - LIVING IN 1984:  AMERICA'S FLIRTATION WITH FASCISM, and Shirley's children's book - BEARS IN SNOW, will all be in sale at the gallery for the month of September. The Featured Authors will also be giving readings from their books, the night of the reception.

Come to the Art Reception to meet the artist and the authors!  Take part in our on-going Tile Fundraising event.  Glaze a tile for installation on the entrance walls of the gallery.  Four wall sections are completed, one more to go!
